Blue Demon rundown: 10-14-13

Softball

Ali Lenti, Amanda Mener, Brittany Boesel, Gena Lenti, Kali Gardner and Kirsten Verdun were all named All-America Scholar-Athletes by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association for achieving a grade point average higher than 3.50 in the 2012-2013 academic year.

Women’s Tennis

The women’s team took to the court in Ann Arbor for the ITA Midwest Regional over the weekend. After a strong showing at the Wildcat Invitational in Evanston the weekend before, the Blue Demons continued their impressive play.

Ana Vladutu and Patricia Fargas led DePaul by moving through the round of 16.

Still, the performance wasn’t as impressive as the previous weekend’s as Kelsey Lawson, Jarret Fisher and Jasmin Kling all fell in the main singles draw.

Volleyball

A 3-0 victory against Georgetown had the Blue Demons riding high entering a tilt against powerful Creighton, but DePaul couldn’t keep up with the Bluejays in a 3-1 loss.

DePaul took the first set 27- 25 but Creighton rallied for three decisive victories. It was a rather poor showing by the team, as they hit a season-low .093 and committed a season-high 28 errors.

Despite the loss, the team remains at 14-3 and will be playing at home in five of the next six games. That includes a rematch at Marquette, which handed DePaul its first loss Sept. 28.
